Learning path: developing emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence (or EI) is fast becoming a valuable, if not essential skill in the modern workplace. Learn more about EI, why it is so important for your success and gain advice on how you can develop your own emotional intelligence. You will also find advice on how leaders can benefit by having strong EI

Employers are increasingly becoming aware of the importance of having an emotionally intelligent workforce. But what is emotional intelligence and what makes it so useful in the workplace?

Emotional intelligence refers to your ability to understand and manage your emotions. It’s increasingly being recognised as a top workplace skill, but what makes it so important? This course explains the five key areas that make up emotional intelligence and why they are so crucial to have at work.

More and more emotional intelligence (EI) is being recognised as a critical factor for career success, but how can you recognise high EI? The course outlines the core qualities of emotionally intelligent individuals.

A recent survey found that 90% of top performers have high emotional intelligence (EI). That’s because many of the key skills you need to be successful in your career require a high degree of emotional intelligence. Throughout this course, you will learn how to focus on your own EI to strengthen those key skills.
